Cool Down with Quick Pickles and Baby Turnips
Braised Turnips in Miso Butter don't require much effort to prepare, or time to cook, leaving you free to find an iced tea and shady spot. Peel 1 bunch of small white turnips and cut the larger ones in halves or quarters. Simmer, covered, for 15 minutes in 1-2 cups dashi (or veggie or chicken) broth mixed with 2 T. mirin. When just barely tender, drain turnips and set aside while you mash together 1 T. each white miso paste and softened butter. Toss miso butter in same pan with turnips and serve at room temperature.
